You know how they [mothers, scientists, aka knowledgeable folk] say staying hydrated and drinking lots of that good ol’ H2O will make you awake and alert? No? Yes? Well supposedly drinking water helps to keep you from getting sleepy.

Today at work however, I had an epiphany: Hydration has nothing to do with keeping you from falling asleep. It is the mere fact that consuming large quantities of water makes you need to go to the bathroom. Really bad. Every hour. Or more. Of course I’m not going to sleep when I am in a constant state of panic that if I uncross my legs I will have an accident.

Staying hydrated in order to not fall asleep at work…worst idea ever.

There has got to be another way.
